  • Altmetrics are a useful way to promote trivial research. They are a corrupting influence on science. All that's needed to get a high score is to write anything about diet and health, or to include 'penis' in the title. Altmetrics are a branch of PR, not of science. That's easy to see if you look at the contents of papers with high altmetric scores as at http://www.dcscience.net/?p=156 and http://www.dcscience.net/?p=6369
    The huge mistake made by all bibliometricians is that they fail to read the papers.
    '
    Bibliometrics are for people who aren’t prepared to take the time (or lack the mental capacity) to evaluate research by reading about it, or in the case of software or databases, by using them. The use of surrogate outcomes in clinical trials is rightly condemned. Bibliometrics are all about surrogate outcomes.'
